Black & White?
22 August 2003 | by ctong1See all my reviews

I walked into this film, without a shred of information about the story line, or any background knowledge of the writer/director, John Covert.

At first, I was a little preoccupied by the wickedly, dark lighting, which was only magnified by the fact that the entire film was shot in black & white. But I must say, when my eyes finally did adjust to the muddy film stock, there seemed to be a very intriguing story unfolding, right before my eyes. Yes, the film revolves around a call-girl operation, but John Covert never even remotely, tried to exploit that subject line.

The brilliance of this film lies in the engaging, yet offbeat characters, particularly the roles of Dewey, played by John Harriman, and Paul, played by John Covert himself. These two guys steal the show. Another stand out role was that of the Madame/Enderby One, played by Valerie Mikita. Her clever portrayal of the evil boss woman was intense and riveting.

The witty dialogue, stylized city shots, quirky music, and the obvious creative passion that went into producing such a gem, all make for an exciting ride at the theatre.
